One-fifth of the total population in India is Bhojpuri speaking, whereas in the world, one-third of the population reads, writes and speaks Bhojpuri. It has got constitutional recognition in many parts of the world, whereas it is unfortunate that it is not constitutionally recognized in its own country.

The announcement of giving place to Bhojpuri and Maithili in Google Translator is a respect for both these languages by Google. Especially Bhojpuri which has not yet been included in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution of India. Bhojpuri is not only the language of a large area of India, but it is spoken in many countries of the world. Bhojpuri speakers are spread from America to Australia and also speak it. It is one of the major languages of countries like Fiji, Guyana, Trinidad, Suriname, Mauritius etc. In all these areas, the lifestyle, food and clothing of Bhojpuri language people are the same.
